How to create the suits-everyone up-do
If your hair is wet, start by roughly drying it. Using a curling iron or styling tool, tong large sections of your hair – starting at the front on each side and working towards the back. You can do this rather roughly as it’s all going to go into an up-do anyway…
Take a large front section on one side of your hair and split it into two, then loosely twist each section around the other, pinning it into place at the back of your head. Repeat on the other side. Pull out a couple of pieces around your face to soften the look if you wish.
